I have found numerous times that If I try and pre-order an item, and I use my Virgin Credit Card to get a discount that I am automatically charged for my pre-order! I recently pre-ordered the Special Edition of Grand Theft Auto IV on the Playstation 3, for £53.00, it would normally be £60.00 but as I said I got the discount because of using a Virgin Credit Card.
Has anyone else had a similar experience with pre-ordering with them? Also did you get a refund for your charge for a pre-order? It confuses me why my card was charged for, when the item is still due to release. It clearly states on their website that they will not charge any credit card until the item dispatches! Is it a temporary charge? Basically I do not want to end up being charged twice for the same item!
